Editorial Reviews

Few American cars could match the beauty, styling and engineering of the Packard motor car. From its birthplace in Warren, Ohio in 1899 to its final days in Detroit, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana in the late '50s, this program chronicles the history of the Packard automobile through interviews with Packard owners, vintage film, and Packard archive photographs. Hosted by Edward Herrmann.

I received this product fast, well packaged and for anyone interested in classic cars, this is a must have but it isn't just a well made documentary about the history of the Packard car, it's also a great American Story of an individual with a vision who created a dynasty and one of the greatest american autmobiles ever made. I highly recommend this.

It was exactly what we were looking for. Entertaining and very informative. Color and clarity are top notch! Learned information that we weren't aware of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD on Classic Packard Cars! February 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I am always a little leery of buying automobile history DVDs produced domestically. For some reason the Brits seem to have a thriving industry of cottage film makers producing great DVD about trains, cars and vintage aircraft - but few live up to that standard on this side of "the pond". So I am happy to say this one absolutely does. It probably helps that it was done by the Packard Museum and Packard Club of America, and it is beautifully narrated by Richard Herman - the actor who played Mr. Gilmore on the "Gilmore Girls" TV show (among many other film and television credits) - who also happens to be a dedicated Packard enthusiast and owner. My wife and I are regular contributors to the Packard Proving Grounds restoration project - and this film used to be available through that organization, but now has become very hard to come by. The film has archival as well as new footage of vintage Packards and their impact on the automotive scene. The connection to Hollywood stars, heads of state and captains of industry - who always seem to have chose Packards as their mode of transport are not overlooked, but neither are the hundreds (if not thousands) of Packard engineering acheivements and "firsts" in the auto industry - as well as their contribution to the war effort of boththe first AND second World War. A once great marque and company, that deserved better than to die after the merger with Studebaker. You will not be disappointed in this film at all.

This dvd of the PBS special narrated by Edward Herrman is a must have for any media library. Well documented and very well shot as these classics almost drove out of my high definition screen!
